It's WrestleMania Sunday!

Today is the biggest show of the Year in Sports Entertainment. These days, that statement applies both literally and figuratively. Conservative estimates suggest the show could clock in at between 6.5-7 hours long. WOW! That is excessive. I'll be sporadically checking in on a few live blog sites for the results as I keep up with MLB Opening Day games. Here are a few matches that I'm interested in today, but mostly for the possibility of what may be rumored to happen instead of watching the talent that is actually booked to perform. I won't get into all that here. The point of today's post is to share one of my favorite WrestleMania moments that was captured on cardboard.

This is the moment one of my favorite wrestlers of all time won his first WWE Championship. The card back does a good job with the recap:

I loved this match for so much more than just the outcome. I thought it had a little bit of everything. There was the Vince/Stone Cold battle, DX, the involvement of Mike Tyson, and a great swerve ending. For me, it was entertaining all the way around. When all was said and done, Tyson's hand hit the mat for a third time and in the words of good ol' JR, 'Austin is the champion'!

Thanks for reading.

  1. I really hope that Mania this year is better than last year. Hope you enjoy the show tonight, it should be fun regardless.
